This Wednesday should be an interesting one for Toronto-area techies! During the workday, there’s this event:
It’s the return of the monthly Toronto Techie Dim Sum lunch this Wednesday, September 19th at noon. It’s a gathering of techies and their friends to get together over a friendly, cheap and cheerful dim sum lunch. There are no formal presentations or discussions or sales pitches; it’s lunch, with as much or as little “networking” as you like. It’ll happen at the usual place: Sky Dragon restaurant, located at the top floor of Dragon City mall, located on the southwest corner of Spadina and Dundas. For more details, see this blog entry.
Later that day, Ladies Learning Code will be throwing their Fundraiser Party at CSI Annex (720 Bathurst Street, halfway between Bloor and Harbord). They now have a permanent atelier at the Annex branch of the Centre for Social Innovation large enough to hold workshops for dozens of eager learners who want to get a better idea of how the technology they use every day works, but it costs money, hence Wednesday’s fundraiser. According to their Indiegogo page, they’ve surpassed their $10,000 fundraising goal, but you can still get tickets and help support them — just get them at http://ladieslearningcodeparty.eventbrite.com/!
